British model and actress Margaret Nolan died earlier this month at the age of 76, director Edgar Wright confirmed Sunday.
“It’s my sad duty to report that actress and artist, the magnificent Margaret Nolan has passed away. She was the middle of Venn diagram of everything cool in the 60′s; having appeared with the Beatles, been beyond iconic in Bond and been part of the Carry On cast too," Wright wrote on Twitter.
Nolan, best known for her appearance as the masseuse character Dink in the 1964 James Bond film “Goldfinger,” also appeared in the movie’s intro sequence as the gold-painted woman.
She also had small parts in a number of films, including the Beatles' “A Hard Day’s Night," named after their 1964 album with the same title.
More recently, Nolan appeared in Wright’s upcoming movie, “Last Night in Soho," which is set to be released in April 2021.
“She was so funny, sharp and, as you might imagine, full of the most amazing stories. I’m so glad I got to know her,” he wrote. “My heart goes out to her family and all that loved her. She will be much missed.”
While Variety reported Nolan died Oct. 5, details regarding her cause of death were not released.
She is survived by her two sons.
